UH, reblogging again for the sweet graffix.
Just to recap the last week:
- A man who beats women was celebrated on national television, and we were told to ‘get over it’ and we ‘shouldn’t judge.’
- A congressional panel on birth control coverage failed to include any women
- A major political donor says on television that in his day, women were told to put an aspirin between their knees to prevent pregnancy.
- A presidential candidate wants to lecture on the ‘dangers of birth control’
- Virginia lawmakers have decided to require women seeking an abortion submit to an unnecessary medical procedure which MAY INCLUDE FORCIBLE PENETRATION.
Oh, but we’re post-feminism, right? No need for it anymore today, right? Pardon me while I dust off my old “keep your rosary off my ovaries” bumper sticker.
Seriously, it’s been a shitty week for women. That’s why I was so happy to read a post on Cracked.com this evening calling out commenters for being sexist assholes.
I loved Luke McKinney’s original post on sexist comics costumes and his response post to sexist comments on the original post is even better.
If you think hot women have it easy because everyone wants to have sex at them, you’re both wrong and also the reason you’re wrong. Most people don’t base their quality of life around how hard it is to get laid, because they actually do get laid, and it isn’t that hard to do. Being a straight male is tremendous fun and sexuality’s lowest difficulty setting: You know what you want and everyone else in your demographic will praise you for being able to do it. No one else on the spectrum of sexual orientation can say that. If women hate you for cursing about how stupid “bitches” are, it’s not because you’re the victim of an anti-male conspiracy: It’s because you’re you.

Happy Birthday Susan B. Anthony!
February 15, 1820 – March 13, 1906
Convicted for Voting
Suffragette Susan B. Anthony registered and voted in the election of 1872 in Rochester, New York. As planned, she was arrested for “knowingly, wrongfully and unlawfully vot[ing] for a representative to the Congress of the United States,” convicted by the State of New York, and fined $100.
There never will be complete equality until women themselves help to make laws and elect lawmakers.––Susan B. Anthony, 1897

Abortion Bill Amendment of the Day: The Virginia state Senate went ahead today with a bill that would require pregnant women to obtain an ultrasound prior to an abortion, after rejecting a Democratic senator’s amendment that would have required men to undergo a rectal exam and cardiac stress test prior to obtaining erectile dysfunction medication.
The amendment’s author, Fairfax County Democrat Janet Howell, said she was merely trying to add “a little gender equality” to the bill.
“It’s requiring [women] to have unnecessary medical procedures, it’s adding to the cost and it’s opening them up for emotional blackmail,” she told her colleagues from the Senate floor. “And I was upset because it’s disrespectful of doctors. It’s forcing them to perform procedures they don’t think is necessary.”
She says she got the idea for the amendment after watching an erectile dysfunction drug ad which listed the pill’s myriad side effects.
“So, I said, it’s only fair, that if we’re going to subject women to unnecessary procedures, and we’re going to subject doctors to having to do things that they don’t think is medically advisory, well, Mr. President, I think we should just have a little gender equity here,” Howell said.
The amendment was ultimately defeated by a relatively narrow margin of 21 to 19. Meanwhile, Senate Bill 484 moves forward to a final floor vote tomorrow.
What a badass, oh my god.
